“Poky guesthouse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2008

The website for Kubba Roonga portrays the place as a home away from home, with luxurious extras such as bathrobes, mohair throws, chocolates on arrival, and port by the fire.

Although all these extras were nice touches, they should really focus on the standard of their rooms, as NO WAY was our room of four star quality.

I was expecting the nice blue/lilac room featured on their website, and when we shown to our little room (Room 5) near the back door, I wanted to leave! It was incredibly poky, draughty and cheap looking with daggy floral curtains, floral carpet and floral lampshades.

Given the location - out of the main tourist area of the Blue Mountains, I do not believe this room represented value for money.

Sure the extra touches are nice, and the cooked breakfast the next morning was lovely, but all these "extras" mean nothing, if rooms aren't up to standard!

krgh, owner at Kubba Roonga Guesthouse, responded to this review, September 20, 2008
We are surprised by this review. Most guests love Room 5!

Kubba Roonga Guesthouse is a heritage guesthouse built in 1915 and has a lovely welcoming feel and lots of character throughout.

All Guest rooms are different and while Room 5 is yet to be refurbished and floral may not appeal to everyone, the room is rated by 4 star AAA.

It is difficult to meet everyones expectations however most rooms are a comfortable size and the guest areas are certainly spacious.

Kubba Roonga's location is away from the main shops - a 10 minute walk . The benefit of this is no highway noise and train noise meriting its name Kubba Roonga - 'Peaceful Place' .
